RE: where to find 30 amp coupler connector protector?

We have a couple of these Rubbermaid plastic stools. Rubbermaid Stool They stack together so they are easy to store and we use them for foot stools, side tables, whatever. When its raining and we need to use an extension cord for the MH, I put the cord connection on one stool, and stack another stool on top. The bottom stool keeps the connection out of the puddles, and the top stool covers the plug from the rain.

RE: Who provides service ?

We have work on our Chevy chassis done by a local Chevy dealer; also no problems.

RE: Rio Grande Valley body shop

We used Steve Reyes Paint & Body in Mercedes a few years ago, and were very pleased with their work.

RE: Command Hooks

Yes, we use that kind of hook to hold a broom as well as other stuff. It works fine.

RE: Leaking through bottom of slide

Our Coachmen leaks when the slide is in too. Ours is the driver-side slide that has the dinette (or couch in our case) and pantry cabinet. It has a slide topper awning, and only leaks when the slide is in. We've had it back to the dealer and they can't find the problem, and I've looked and can't find a solution either.

RE: What's your RV's Name???

Our first motorhome was a Coachmen Mirada. We called it Carmen. We weren't able to think of catchy names for the subsequent motorhomes, so they have just been called the "summer cottage".

RE: How do you carry Blue Tote?

It would be very helpful IMHO, if more people would answer the OP's question instead of explaining why they would never carry a Blue Tote. She asked about how to carry one, and I would like to see some creative ideas too. Goducks10 has an interesting idea; I'd like to see more pictures of that.

RE: winterization question

On a previous motorhome, we had this happen when we had the valves setup incorrectly. (insistently, this did come in handy at a later time for adding water to the freshwater tank via the winterizing siphon) On the new motorhome, we had this happen and eventually found that the winterizing siphon valve had been installed backwards.

RE: Opinions on Coachmen Leprechaun Please

Not too happy with our Leprechaun. We downsized from a Winnebago Class A and I guess we were spoiled by the quality of the Winnie. In our Leprechaun we have had plumbing leaks caused by screws through water pipes put there during construction, leaks from un-caulked clearance lights, plumbing leaks from cheap pex fittings, a leak around the slide, and a leak in the cab-over area we haven't tracked down yet. We really like the Chevy chassis, but that's about it right now; the build quality is just not what we had hoped for.

RE: Whittiling

I have been carving for a long time and have several knives. I have found the folding knives to be fairly useless for me. They are uncomfortable to hold, and as mentioned, the blade angle seems wrong. I much prefer fixed blade knives and usually use a couple made by Flexcut. Flexcut is available from many vendors. I have found carving groups in "Snowbird" and "Winter Texan" parks, as well as the park we stay at in Minnesota during the summer. I have found carvers just by walking around a park and seeing who's sitting out making chips. It's a great hobby. Have fun (Oh, and get a carving glove!).

RE: Class A comparison?

Here's a good starting point: Ratings of Most Popular Class A RVs Thor and Coachmen rated at the top? Really? That doesn't match my experiences at all.

RE: Iconic USA Drives....List Your Favorite

Another vote for the Beartooth, although it was a tough decision between that and Hwy 61 on Superior's North Shore. (How's that for sneaking in two answers?)

RE: Campground near Decatur or Springfiled Illinois

We also used the state fair campground in Springfield for an overnight stop. It was as dbbls described it. Worked well for us.

RE: Refridgerator Poll (sort of)

Ours stays on from spring to fall, parked next to the garage in our yard. We don't run the AC. When the weather is hot we try to be somewhere cool.

RE: Familarity of telemarketers

Anyone that calls me by my real first name, either on the phone or in person, doesn't know me or, like my parents, has passed away, so I can hang up in seconds. "Jim Shoe" is one of many names I used when building test data sets for computer programs when I was working. Bill Ding, Fred Greencloud and Ben Dover were also popular. LOL I often used Ronnie Nose and Rusty Springs.

RE: Class C regrets/Options you wish you had?First time class C

what does everyone think of the coachman brand? Not too happy with ours. We downsized from a Winnebago Class A and I guess we were spoiled by the quality of the Winnie. In our Leprechaun we have had plumbing leaks caused by screws through water pipes put there during construction, leaks from un-caulked clearance lights, leaks from who knows what. We really like the Chevy chassis, but that's about it right now.

RE: Dealer wanted 160$ for maxx air. I did it for 30$.

We had a dealer install two of those on a previous MH. Instead of bolting them to the vent flange, they took the easy way out and screwed the brackets to the roof. It took us a long time to figure out where those leaks came from.
